This was an excellent way to see the Hilo area. Robert, our tour guide did an outstanding job showing us a lava tube we could walk in and the museum overlooking the crater volcano. Snacks and drinks were provided and included with the tour price. An overall great day.

Via the internet I chose Robert of Kamaaina Custom Tours to take 4 of us on his Kilauea Volcano Tour. Even with drizzly, cloudy weather, this was an amazing tour and day in Hilo. Robert was thoroughly professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. He talked about island history, culture, economics, flora and fauna, volcanoes and more. I really enjoyed the nature and... More

Robert collected our family of four (two adult boys) from the Pride of America for a fantastic and flexible day. After discussing what we would like to see and do in the day, we started by driving to the lava flow area, where Robert dropped us much much closer than the usual parking area for the long but fabulous walk...

Robert was prompt to meet us at the cruise ship dock. He was waiting with our names on a plaque. We organized the custom tour for four adults prior to our arrival in Hawaii by email. Very quick to correspond and answered any questions we had. Robert was accommodating and organized a day for us within our cruise ship departure... More

We, a family of seniors from India had toured big island with Robert for three days. We had a marvellous time, being taken around to Hilo by him. He is a pleasant, friendly person very helpful, and quick to understand our requirements and to fulfill them. A guide is truly great if he can adopt himself to the moods and... More

We were in Hilo off the Pride of America. Robert met us at the port. There were 4 of us and he customized the tour perfectly for us! We did a combination tour of the volcano and waterfalls. We saw Rainbow Falls and Akaka Falls. He also found some other out of the way places to show us that were... More

Robert was a pleasure to have tour us around for the day. Very courteous and eager to please. We wanted a custom tour due to my wife's medical issues and limited mobility. Robert made sure we were able to see and do everything we wanted on our own time/ability. I would definitely recommend him.

We are a family of 5 - 2 adults and 10, 14 & 15 yr old. We were on the Pride of America cruise and all of their tours were expensive and on large bus tours which with teenagers in tow we did not want. I came across Robert's tour and emailed him to see if we could customise a... More

Robert collected our family of four (two adult kids) from the Pride of America for a combination tour of the Lava flow, Volcanoes National Park and more in December. He was super prompt with his replies when I organised the tour and was waiting exactly as arranged. We went directly to the lava flow area, which is about an hours... More

We had a great time with Robert touring the lovely beaches of Hilo….including swimming with and feeding the huge sea turtles and snorkeling at the Black Sand Beach. The he took us to a great coffee house for lunch and then we went to see the lava flow at dusk. What great family memories we created…once in a lifetime experiences.... More
